Can I get updates to my Visual Studio 2013 Professional?

    Question

  • I recently learned that VS 2013 Pro is up to "Update 5" by now. I didn't receive any updates to my release via Windows Update, nor did Microsoft contact me about purchasing updates.

    I contacted the Microsoft Store, to try to purchase the updates.  But the answer I got was "We can sell you VS 2015 Pro".

    I understand the marketing strategy, why would Microsoft support the 2013 release when a new one (2015) is available.

    Is there any way that anyone knows of for me to get the 2013 updates, without breaking any Microsoft rules?

  • Hi G Beckwith,

    If you have Update 5, than you have last version of Visual Studio 2013. You can see that here: https://www.visualstudio.com/news/vs2013-update5-vs
